It’s the most wonderful time of the year.
It won’t be a typical summer for the majority of us but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t have essential summer products.
Here’s a list of what I find to be summer must-haves.
Sunscreen chapstick– A must! My lips always get super dry in the summer. I use SunBum. Once I started using a chapstick with sunscreen it has helped so much. It makes me feel better knowing that I’m taking good care of myself, while still being able to enjoy the sun.
Chlorine shampoo/conditioner– If you enjoy the pool as much as I do, stop what you’re doing and buy hair washes that specifically help remove the chlorine from your hair. It helps keep my hair from drying out.
Good reads– There’s nothing better than those days where you’re sitting on the beach or poolside and getting to read your book. Yet, that moment can easily get ruined if you don’t have a good read. So, here’s some on my list to enjoy for those days.

Exfoliators– Peeling skin? Exfoliate in the shower! I usually do once or twice a week. For my face, I use Dr. Brant and right now for my body I am using Tree Hut.
Hydro flask– Invest in one! They are amazing. Obviously, you’re helping the environment by lessening the number of water bottles, and they keep your water cold. On hot summer days, it is the best thing to have.
Cooling face spray– I use the “breath of fresh air” face toner from LUSH. I spritz it a couple of times on my face and the cooling feeling is so relaxing.
Disposable camera– This is so fun to do but also something that you and your friends will never forget. What I love about this concept is you only get the chance to take a couple of photos, so they come out looking more natural. I find that there are more stories and memories behind pictures that are taken like this.
I hope my little list was somewhat useful for you!
